    Night Owl = Day Zombie

    I will pay the price tomorrow once again - doomed to roam the Earth as the walking dead. But right now I am totally awake and full of creative energy. There is a full moon outside, and I think it does affect me somehow. I remember an illustration in a book from my childhood. On...

    Former Night Owl, actually!

    I used to stay up all night working on projects while in college; it felt like I had no time... and yet so much time! I would browse the internet, write captivating stories, paint endlessly until those silent rays of sunshine peered through the blinds. I haven't actually...

    A Dozen Reasons Why Nighttime Is the Right Time!

    Yeah, I fight it...because I have children and a husband.  But it keeps coming back, and I love it.   Night is Right because: It feels like the world is wrapped in velvet. It's quiet. The sun is not burning my skin. The best television is late...

    Lol things are just more interesting at night

    plus it seems like the juiciest stuff happens at night. I try to force myself to go to sleep though (for school) but I really don't be tired. I love being on the internet at night tweeting, facebooking, or just being online. It's sooo fun. Plus, for some reason at night I just...

    The Quiet Sound Of The World At Standby

    No matter where you are, the world is a very different place at night. The annoying sounds of daytime cease to exist and you are enveloped by a velvet cover of stillness and peace, but only if you choose to be. Most people are gone, and you have the time to think and live...

    Hwooooo.

    Yes I, Krissy must admit to being a night owl. I am up very late every night. I love sleeping but I am so impatient I cannot fall asleep. I hate the mornings. I am grumpy and I try my hardest to get five more minutes of sleep. *Flaps wings* Yup. :| Are you still reading...

    I will stay up until 2

    or 3 in the morning and then get up at 7 or 8 in the morning during the week. I just don't like going to sleep but when I get the chance, I will sleep until close to noon. Sadly, that is less frequent now but it still feels great when I can.

    I'm never tired when I should be going to sleep

    so I just end up staying up late. Then I wake up tired, and then the cycle repeats. Life of a student.

    I have been like this

    for many years and I blame it on insomnia. I end up spending hours staying awake at night and having little sleep before getting up the next day. But I wouldn't change it. It's part of what makes me who I am and I enjoy being up when it's dark outside. Sometimes, I go out at...

    The Essence Of The Night

    The essence of the night brings the chance to complete unfinished dreams of the day, while also showing the path into the hope of a new tomorrow, not claimed by anyone but ready to make it your own.

    I seriously don't ever sleep.

    And it's not that I can't; I just have no desire to. There is so much to be done at night, when everyone else is asleep, and not bothering me. There isn't enough time in life to sleep.

    I've always been a late night person, I don't like sleeping at night, there's too much fun to be had. Even if there's no fun happening, nighttime is one of those things that has so many different facets to it. Nighttime can bring mystery, I remember being a young kid and I would...

    I don't know why it's

    so difficult for me to go to bed at a reasonable hour. Even if I'm really tired, I force myself to stay awake. I've always been like that. It's like life becomes more exciting so late at night, and I'll be missing out on something grand if go to sleep. Oh, well. :P

    I rarely sleep! My mind is everywhere

    but where it needs to be! I just prefer the night where everything is quiet and settled! I am also an insomniac and find it hard to sleep even when I have to work the next day.

    What I really love about the night is the

    contrast. If you play a daytime gig at a county fair or something, you've moving from the stage to the noise and crowd. But do a nightclub and break everything down at 4am and there's stillness outside. It makes it so much easier to review in your mind what went on.

    The owl perches once again. It would not be a big deal if the owl didn't have class in the morning. The owl lays in a nest of strategically arranged blankets that sit precisely to her liking. She types away at her dying laptop Is it worth it to get up and get the charger...

    I admit it I am rather nocturnal.

    . There is just something about being up late. I think it's the peacefulness I feel without the hustle and hurry of the day. :)

    I didn't believe this,

    I thought it was insomnia. Last night I chatted away with a couple of friends on here, about nothing in particular, and went to bed at about 7 in the morning. I did not notice it getting light. There is more to this story, but that belongs elsewhere.....
